BG Group and Keppel Offshore & Marine have secured the license to supply LNG bunker to vessels in the Port of Singapore after submitting a joint bid to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. With the granting of the license, BG Group and Keppel will form a 50-50 joint venture to deliver an end-to-end bunkering solution using LNG sourced from BG Group’s diversified LNG portfolio.
The new venture builds on BG Group’s existing role as the exclusive aggregator for Singapore’s first
three million tonnes per annum of LNG demand. Following the start of commercial operations at Singapore LNG Corporation’s LNG terminal in May 2013, BG Group has to date delivered 72 cargoes into Singapore from its global LNG portfolio, helping the country to safely diversify its energy sources and increase security of supply. The partnership with Keppel also builds on their expertise in offshore rig design, construction and repair; ship repair and conversion; and specialised shipbuilding.
